As the entire automotive ecosystem pivots from metal to mobility, the face of transportation is undoubtedly changing forever. It’s this challenge that automakers and their suppliers currently face; increase market share with today’s tech-hungry buyer, evolve to diversify mobility service offerings, whilst ensuring that they’re leaders in the autonomous revolution. Failure to engage on any of these fronts is not an option. What unites these challenges is the need for agile tech innovation and a laser-like focus on putting the customer first; whether in terms of user experience or new business models.

This is why TU-Automotive Detroit exists. Since the turn of the century it has united the worlds of automotive and digital. It’s the annual event around which the connected vehicle developed from exciting but niche technology into the community shaping the entire future of mobility.

IDCC11 Workshop: Domain names and persistence Header link

8 December 2011

Bristol, UK

Sponsored by the World Wide Web Consortium and the Digital Curation Centre

The vulnerability of any digital material to unexpected or unintended changes in Internet domain name assignment, and hence to the outcome of domain name resolution, is widely recognised. The fact that domain names are not permanently assigned is regularly cited as one of the main reasons why http: URIs cannot be regarded as persistent identifiers over the long term. This workshop is intended to bring together interested parties to explore the dimensions of the problem and possible directions in which to look for solutions.

See the Conference Program for more information.
